Ricky D's Story
It all started with a …
I’m originally from Cleveland, OH but also lived in Memphis, TN for nine years. After graduating from Virginia State University working four years in “Corporate America”, I realized that I wanted to do something I would enjoy every day.
During this time, I hosted cookouts at home and really enjoyed people’s reaction to my food. I noticed there were no original BBQ spots in New Haven so I decided to start my own and Ricky D’s Rib Shack was born; “Don’t Bite Ya Fingers”. I’m proud to say that I’m doing something that I truly love. I can’t ask for anything better than that.
Everyday is a cook-out!
